Bacon’s moment in the sun will pass. But for now the humble belly off a hog is enjoying a long, sustained turn in the spotlight brought on by a combination of deliciousness and savvy marketing. Profiteers are always willing to cash in on the meat of the moment.
There’s no reason to buy commercial bacon when you can easily make your own. If you’re reasonably adept in the kitchen and have 7 days worth of patience you can have 8-9 pounds of bacon for your freezer.
It will be better than 90% of what you can buy in a proper grocery store.
